Here Is What Happens When You Spray Your Bed With Alcohol

Alcohol is added to cosmetic products and used as a disinfectant and adhesive substances. But did you know it can destroy bed bugs? Just spray it over the mattress and pillows, and after several times, your bed will be free of these pests.

Here are a few other purposes for it’s use:

Numerous acne ointments and creams involve benzyl peroxide. Yet, rubbing alcohol has potent anti-inflammatory effects which soothe the affected skin, disinfect pimples, and prevent acne appearance. All you need to do is to apply it on the affected skin area.

Cold Sores treatment

About 85 percent of the world population carries the herpes virus, but only some of them experience a break put. In this case, just apply 70 percent isopropyl alcohol on the affected area and the cold sores will vanish soon.

Deodorant Replacement

Rub some alcohol on your armpits, it removes the bad odor on the armpits. Yet, note that the long exposure to alcohol can lead to skin irritations.

Removal of Ingrown Hairs

Apply some rubbing alcohol on the armpits and bikini area after shaving to remove ingrown hairs, and treat irritations.

Cool Pack

Mix water and alcohol in 2:1 ratio, and store it in a sealable plastic bag in the fridge for an hour. Then, use it as an ice pack, or to cool your meals when outdoors.

Remove Nail Polish

Common nail polish removers are high in harsh chemicals which damage the nails. Yet, use rubbing alcohol to replace chemical acetone.

Clean Your Ears

Cotton swabs are commonly used for ear cleaning, but they, in fact, push the earwax deeper into the ear canal. Therefore, you can mix rubbing alcohol with white vinegar, and soak a cotton swab in the solution. Then, just drop it into your ears and the earwax will come out on its own.

Destroy Lice

You should pour rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, and add several drops of lavender oil. Then, spray this solution onto the scalp, and comb the hair to eliminate the dead lice.

DIY Hand Sanitizer

It can be an effective homemade hand sanitizer. Mix ½ tablespoon of isopropyl alcohol, several drops of tea tree oil, and 4 ounces of Aloe Vera gel to prepare the solution.
